‘You suddenly had Kasabian, Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, Kings Of Leon, The Killers, this explosion of really fucking great music, and nobody else could really understand what was going on, because it was based in the live experience. People say to me, ‘Oh you were so lucky, because you had such a great scene, great bands and stuff.’ We fucking built that scene. It doesn’t appear by itself.’

And all absolutely shite. Funnily enough I remember starting to really hate all those bands and the like. I liked the kings of Leon’s first few early songs but that was about it
God, those english music mags had alot of influence from the 80s to the early 00s. Its funny now to see how far the NME has fallen. What is it, a free pamphlet & a shit website?

Bloc party. - I like a song or two. Banquet, that was good.
The Killers - maybe a song or two. But I was always a bit suspicious of them. That song " its indie rock n roll for me" Your not indie rock, you obviously want to be a stadium band.
Kaiser chiefs - yeah, I like a few songs, couldn't take a full album though.
Kings of Leon - I think they've done some good radio rock singles. But they have settled into being dull, bland stadium alt rock for the masses.
Kasabian - just a load of laddy swagger & hot air. it says a lot about the slump that rock is in for the last few years when a band as mediocre & full of shit as kasabian can get that big.

I’m never trusting your opinion on anything again. That is woeful. Napoleon Dynamite backed by the Orange Organics.
I'm putting this all down to Mac DeMarco. Between him, War on Drugs and Ariel Pink there's now an entire generation of kids who just want to sound like The Eagles being played by Pavement.

who's that now? Looks like the kind of guy who used to turn up going out with Peaches Geldof.

i think he popped up on the hipster thread as the guy who goes around in a van with his equally annoying girlfriend instagramming their amazing sexploits
